This tutorial explains how to export all liked tweets to Google Sheets. The method explained in the tutorial will automatically log all of your liked tweets to a new Google Sheet file. The best part is that you can also choose to save URL of liked tweet, handle of the user who liked it, embed code, and other details in the Google Sheets. You can then download the liked tweets data as an XLSX file which can be opened in Microsoft Excel for further processing. Well, nothing tricky is involved here as you can create a simple IFTTT Applet which will archive all of your liked tweets by their username and URL in a Google Sheets file. Do note that this method will not save the previously liked tweets. It will start saving all of your liked tweets after you create the required IFTTT Applet to automate the task to save all liked Tweets.
